3.0 out of 5 stars glastonbury in space, 10 April 2008
This review is from: The Dark Husband (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Another audio adventure for doctor who. this one features sylvester mccoy as the seventh doctor, sophie aldred as his companion ace, and philip olivier as his companion hex - a character who was created especially for audio and has been in quite a few stories with the doctor and ace.

As usual this contains two discs, with two story episodes on each. The episodes do run a little longer than the usual twenty five minutes. and both discs end with approx fifteen minutes of interviews with the cast and crew, and the last track on disc four is five minutes of the music from the story.

This story involves the doctor and his companions visiting the planet tuin. Advertised as holding the most amazing festival ever it looks like just the place for a nice break from what they usually go through. but they land in the middle of a war zone, and find that there's more to this planet than meets the eye. and certain sacrifices will have to be made to end the fighting...

Written by top tv comedy writer david quantick, this strives to be fairly humorous. And that part just about works. It's not laugh out loud funny but comedy coming from character based situations, and there are some decent moments as a result. The alien world is very strange and well realised and populated by two warring species. The truth about them is a good twist in part four.

But this story is a bit too long, and drags at points, especially in part two. The fact that it's also not laugh out loud funny may mean some people don't find it involving.

There's a fair amount to like here, but whilst it's not bad, it's not the strongest audio ever.
